Re: Anyone know what size drill bit to convert to NG?

I got my burner today and curious if anyone knows the correct drill size for natural gas.

Thanks,

Joe

All that info and more - viewtopic.php?t=703 . Based on the chart, I think I remember someone saying it is about 20k BTU burner (Dennis??) and 4" NG - I would say 3/32 inch drill.

First we were told 11K then 18k then 20k..

All three shops were confidant in their number..

The wholesaler had no clue..

I used a #45 and it seems to work well.

Thanks for the help.

Close enough - only a few thousands difference. If you ever need it to burn a little hotter, just increase it a tiny bit.

I went to my local BBQ store and we started at a low number (<40) and worked our way up. The guy at the store sells these burners (or something similar) and claims that they are 20k BTU. We kept enlarging the hole until there was the occasional yellow flame (like a flicker every 3-4 seconds). This was at "50". In other words, "49" will give you the biggest blue flame. Any BBQ store should have the hand-twisted bits for auguring out the pilot hole. Just tell them to use a "49" on it and you'll be set.
